Joshua 19* The lot of Simeon. (1-9) The lot of Zebulun. (10-16) The lotof Issachar, Asher, Naphtali, and Dan. (17-51)1-9 The men of Judah did not oppose taking away the citieswithin their border, when convinced that they had more than wasright. If a true believer has obtained an unintended andimproper advantage in any thing, he will give it up withoutmurmuring. Love seeketh not her own, and doth not behaveunseemly; it will induce those in whom it richly dwells, to partwith their own to supply what is lacking to their brethren. 10-16 In the division to each tribe of Israel, the propheticblessings of Jacob were fulfilled. They chose for themselves, orit was divided to them by lot, in the manner and places that heforesaw. So sure a rule to go by is the word of prophecy: we seeby it what to believe, and it proves beyond all dispute thethings that are of God. 17-51 Joshua waited till all the tribes were settled, before heasked any provision for himself. He was content to be unfixed,till he saw them all placed, and herein is an example to all inpublic places, to prefer the common welfare before privateadvantage. Those who labour most to do good to others, seek aninheritance in the Canaan above: but it will be soon enough toenter thereon, when they have done all the service to theirbrethren of which they are capable. Nor can any thing moreeffectually assure them of their title to it, than endeavouringto bring others to desire, to seek, and to obtain it. Our LordJesus came and dwelt on earth, not in pomp but poverty,providing rest for man, yet himself not having where to lay hishead; for Christ pleased not himself. Nor would he enter uponhis inheritance, till by his obedience to death he secured theeternal inheritance for all his people; nor will he account hisown glory completed, till every ransomed sinner is put inpossession of his heavenly rest.
